My NeoGen Evo Experience

I’ve always been interested to try one of these latest facial rejuvenation devices but to be honest was a little scared it was going to hurt. I was also worried about the downtime and whether it was all worth it. However, I decided to bite the bullet as they say and just do it! I had a NeoGen Evo plasma treatment and here is my experience!

I’d done a bit of research about the different plasmas and devices on the market. In the end, I went with a newer one on the Australian market but one that has been generating a bit of buzz in the US and Europe. It’s called NeoGen Evo. Being super busy with work and my kids and life in general, I couldn’t afford any downtime and the thing I like about the NeoGen Evo plasma is that the physician can set the machine to different levels of treatment which affect the downtime. I also wanted a gentler treatment for my first time!

So, I went with the lowest level of plasma energy as they say that’s what affects the downtime. It started like a facial laying on the bed, where they put a hydrating face mark on my face to hydrate it and let it soak in for 15 minutes. Oh, and they had also strongly advised me to drink plenty of water the day before to get the best result.

The practitioner then started with the plasma machine (the NeoGen Evo). What did it feel like? It felt like little zaps on my face. The best part of all was that it was not at all painful or uncomfortable, and all I could smell was the hair on my face burning (which I actually really liked!!) I could imagine that the higher level of plasma energy wouldn’t be as painless but everyone has their own pain thresholds I guess. There’s also things they can do if you’re really worried, like numbing cream, but I didn’t need any of that for my treatment.

After the treatment, my face was a little red, but the next day it was absolutely glowing! It also looked tighter to me which is amazing!! They say it’s something amazing to do before your wedding or a big event to give you that amazing glowing face and I totally get why.

All in all, my first plasma treatment was awesome – I love my results – my face feels smoother, tighter, and I definitely have that “glow” they talk about. And, best of all, it wasn’t nearly as painful as I had imagined, although I have heard that some plasma devices hurt more than others! Well, for those of you wanting something that’s completely fine, I would say to check out the NeoGen Evo.

At many of the non-surgical conferences this year we’ve seen the NeoGen EVO skin rejuvenation treatment and clinics all over Australia are starting to rave over this device. We also spoke to a patient who’d had the treatment earlier this year who says she’ll definitely be having it again. We caught up with Joanna Green from Battery Point Medical Skin in Hobart, Tasmania about why this is her stand-out treatment of the year and why her patients are loving it. Here’s our Q&A with her, and Jo also shared the video she took of her actually having the treatment. It’s a great insight into what happens during the treatment so you know what to expect. Jo says she’s been dealing with her pigmentation for years with different non-surgical treatments and topical creams and ointments but never had results like this.

Jo says after 2 weeks the pigment is still lifting, but it’s a huge difference











AA: What is the NeoGen and how does it work?

Jo: NEOGEN™ EVO converts nitrogen gas into plasma energy, the fourth state of matter. The plasma emerges from the hand piece in controlled pulses and rapid heating of tissue occurs as it gives up its unique thermal energy to tissue.

Nitrogen Plasma technology delivers controlled heating to the skin architecture stimulating a significant physiological response, without creating an open wound. Unlike ablative technologies, there is no epidermal vaporisation or charring caused at the time of treatment.

The unique energy delivered by NEOGEN™ EVO is non-fractionated and not dependant on a chromophore for its uptake. This provides uniform energy absorption, ensuring consistent treatment of the skin. At high energies it also supports significant tightening.

Battery Point Medical Skin offer a wide range of treatments but the NeoGen EVO is one of their hottest right now.

AA: What is it able to treat? Eg. does it get rid of wrinkles, pigmentation?

Jo: There are a range of skin issues it can treat and address including:

  • Skin Resurfacing
  • Skin Rejuvenation
  • Skin Tightening
  • Skin Regeneration
  • Severe And Fine Wrinkle Reduction
  • Acne Scarring
  • Pigmentation
  • Precancerous Lesions
  • Photo Damage
  • For Face, Neck And Body

AA: Is it suitable for all skin types/all patients?

Jo: Yes all range of skin types and skin locations can be safely, even around the eyes as its not laser… so eye lid/blepharoplasty can be performed without surgery.

AA: Is the treatment painful, and is the recovery painful? If yes, how is it managed?

Jo: There is mild discomfort only even with the higher energy treatment. Check out my video of me having the treatment to see how I handle it!

No open wounds – the treated photodamaged layers undergo a controlled thermal modification, whilst remaining intact. This creates a natural dressing to provide protection and speed up healing. At high energies the epidermis sheds, but only after a new, healthier skin architecture is formed beneath.Peeling can be managed with simple Vaseline if required. With high energy treatment we advise 10 days of recovery..with low energy no downtime is required.

NeoGen EVO can also perform non-surgical blepharoplasty

AA: You’ve had the treatment yourself – what results did you get? What results have you been getting for your patients?

Jo: We have some amazing results… it’s so exciting to offer something truly innovative. My décolletage pigmentation/wrinkles have been stubborn to treat previously… but after 2 weeks after high energy the results are impressive. We also have before and after pics of my colleagues eyes… achieving an amazing lift and reduction in pigmentation. One of my clients of Asian descent with acne scarring and melasma in her forties posted that she was ‘walking around without wearing make up for the first time in her adult life’ just 10 days after a full facial high energy treatment.
